The overall goal of this Strategy is to rehabilitate native fish communities in the Murray–Darling Basin back to 60 per cent of their estimated pre–European settlement levels after 50 years of implementation.
This Native Fish Strategy seeks to increase native fish population back to 60 per cent of their estimated pre–European settlement levels over a 50–year period. There is sufficient confidence this can be done through key actions ranging from restoring fish passage to environmental flows and rehabilitation of river reaches. The strategy provides direction for investment in on–ground management activities and associated research.
